A couple of things I forgot to mention....

The best eye makeup remover:

But seriously. Every line has an oily eye makeup remover. They all work. Others I use:
Clarins Instant Eye Makeup Remover
Shiseido The Skincare Instant Eye & Lip Makeup Remover 
Nars Eye Makeup Remover

The other thing that I adore and should use all the time, but I keep forgetting.I own, is Clarisonic PRO Deluxe Professional 4-Speed Skin Care System. This thing rocks. Brushes for all skin types. Makes you feel like you are getting a professional facial every time you use it. In fact, that's where I felt it for the first time.

Overpriced shit I would consider buying:

Sisley Botanical Buff & Wash Facial Gel is magic. Why would I lie? This shit is all botanical all the time and threatens to restore your pH. All I know is that my face feels like a baby's ass when I use it. The grainy texture makes me weep with pleasure. Did I mention it is magic?

So what? A bar soap that is $100? Sure. Because it moisturizes and exfoliates with the ultimate Japanese technology. Also it smells good. And you thought Cle De Peau Gentle Cleansing Foam was crazy expensive. Try their Synactif line. Hope you enjoy that second mortgage, because you are gonna look hot.

Wipe that crap off your face, young lady.

The easiest and gentlest way to get your face clean is with a wipe. If these things didn't exist, I would never wash my face before bed. As it is, I rarely wash my face before bed. But you should. Do as I say not as I do I really like Mac Wipes. They are so soft and big and you can get a shit ton of them for $26. I think they have vitamin E and I swear I will buy anything that has E in it..

Also good, but for an oilier skin, Shiseido Pureness Gentle Cleansing Sheets. Although I have dry ass skin and have used them quite a lot with no ill effect. There are only 30 in in here for $17 but they smell real good.

The ones in my bathroom at the moment are Estee Lauder Take It Away Towelettes. Lauder wants me to wash my face with cleanser after I wipe, but I say screw it and go to bed. $17

Now at Target you can get pretty much the same business in a million different forms. I love the Olay line.They have a bunch of cloths but I like Olay Regenerist Micro-Derm Cleansing Cloth, I can't imagine they are as exfoliating as they say, but I like them. Also, for you sensitivos, Olay Daily Facials Fragrance Free ExpressWet Cleansing Cloths for Sensitive Skin, could be exactly what you are looking for.

Dry skin is difficult to wash. Water has a tendency to make skin dryer, which seems COUNTER INTUITIVE but is true. So you have to make sure your cleanser doesn't sap moisture from your skin. Using the smallest amount of water  helps too. Well, Shiseido Benefiance Creamy Cleansing Foam. will clean your skin, will foam up with just a little water, gently exfoliate, and not make your skin feel tight or dry.

Dirty face!!!

Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, For all skin types, 16-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 2)

This should be in everyone's shower. There are two kinds: Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleanser, For all skin types and Cetaphil Daily Facial Cleanser, for normal to oily skin. They look almost exactly alike, but if you aren't a moron you will notice one is for oily skin and one is gentle, or for dry skin. Or skin that's sensitive. And by that I mean gets itchy or red. C'mon people. Don't be the assholes I deal with on a daily basis. Know your skin type. Are you oily or dry or some combination therein? Then pick the appropriate Cetaphil and wash twice daily. We will get into fancier cleansing this week, but this is your Target/drugstore must have!
